Fans not flocking for Floyd vs Conor
It’s supposed to be the hottest ticket in sports, but so far fans aren’t exactly storming the box office to buy tickets for Floyd Mayweather’s Aug 26 fight with Conor McGregor in Las Vegas.
A weekend online check revealed thousands of seats still available from Ticketmaster at the T-Mobile arena. That might be because of the astronomical prices set by promoters. The cheapest tickets are $3,500, plus another $300 or so for buyer fees, and climb to $10,000 near the ring. “Platinum” seats go for $14,995.
Boxing’s record gate is $72,198,500, for Mayweather versus Manny Pacquiao in 2015.
